I have the Titan T-50 4 stage with the stock spray gun. i sprayed 4 houses with latex paint and 15-20 pieces of furniture with this gun. There is a learning curve and not too many problems except these, The Guncheck valve keps gumming up with the product. I have no idea why or what the purpose of this valve is. Second is the cup seal leaks and the vinyl tubes to the valve harden to the point they are brittle and hard to remove to clean. Anyone have any input on this would be appreciated.

Did you ever sort this out? What did the vendor say when you contacted them?

The gun check valves and ai rubes need to be replaced often. This is not a big expence. The purpose of the valve is to supply air to the tip. The Titan spray gun is not designrd to tilt more than 55-60 degrees. The Apollo spray gun is a considerable amount better, but at an additional $600.00 for the system I thought I would give the Titan a whirl.
I have a friend that bought the Apollo system and used it once in 3 years. I on the other hand use mine quite often. With hind sight I would have bought the Apollo, but I didn’t know. I would recommend the Titan for the budget system and the Apollo for pro’s. I talked to the sales ppl for Titan and they have yet to come out with a better gun. The rest of the info I figured out and with help from other web sites, good luck
